Our festive markets return outside the stadium for the visit of Everton on Saturday, meaning you can tie in your visit to the home of the champions with some Christmas shopping on the first day of December.
The markets are back after a successful first evening’s trading when supporters lapped up the range of tasty international street food and variety of seasonal gifts and City memorabilia when Real Madrid were in town.
On Saturday, rom midday until 2.45pm and for an hour after full-time, you'll have the opportunity to buy a range of unique hand-made Christmas and Birthday cards courtesy of Kuli Cards and Made MCR will be selling stylish t-shirts, sweatshirts and hooded jumpers.
Also available to purchase are signed images of your City heroes, bespoke phone and tablet covers and lots, lots more.
Whether it’s a special Christmas gift for a loved one or a hankering after something more exotic than a pie or a burger as your pre-match meal, you’ll be able to find it at City Square Markets at the Etihad.
Foodies will be able to sample culinary delights from the Harvey Nichols Gastronomique van, The Hungry Gecko (an Asian street food stall), Streatza (traditional wood-fired pizza), El Kantina (Mexican inspired street food) as well as the traditional German Sausages, Spanish Churros and French Crepes you'd expect.
As well as this, you’ll be able to purchase your Santa suit for the third annual Santa Stroll which takes place on Sunday from the queries cabin outside the stadium and Key 103 will be hosting a Mission Christmas present drop off for those wishing to make contributions to a very worthy cause.
You may have missed the news that Robbie Williams will be playing two dates at the Etihad Stadium in June 2013.
Tickets are on sale from Friday 30 November for what is sure to be one of the hottest tickets in town but you could be in with a chance of winning two hospitality tickets for the gig if you get to the City Square at the Etihad Stadium early for what is sure to be another memorable afternoon of fun and football.
